Danielle Paquette, Washington Post – August 17, 2016
Last month, I spoke to Conway over lunch after she wrapped an interview with Katie Couric about how Trump will appeal to female voters — a demographic that national polls show generally and dramatically dislikes him. (All year long, at least 65 percent of women surveyed in The Washington Post-ABC polls have reported an “unfavorable” view of Trump.) The interview revealed how, exactly, Conway counsels Trump. She described a delicate dance: You can’t just tell Trump what to do, she said. Commands could insult him.
